The pure white snow scene is the unique romance of winter. This article will continue to recommend Beijing suburban snow fields for you. While the sun is shining, let’s fire our enthusiasm for skiing to experience the fun of skiing!
1. Badaling Ski Resort
Located in Yanqing District, Badaling Ski Resort is about 2km from the west of Badaling. The ski resort has undergone an all-round transformation that overturns the traditional ski resort management and ski-teaching mode. As a result, it becomes the first safe ski resort in Beijing that provides free guidance for snowboarders of all levels and ensures no potential danger posed by beginners.
Badaling Ski Resort boasts primary, intermediate, and senior skiing trails, totaling 8 trails with the longest single trail being 700 meters, and ice and snow parks. The ski slopes named after the "Eight Great Passes" of the Great Wall are equipped with a four-person gondola, a 400-meter tow, seven magic carpets, and other facilities.
Skiers can receive free skiing lessons of all levels at the ski School's Beginner's Learning Park and Topographic Learning Park.
The teaching model that features beginners participating in “pass-through” activities reverses the original one-to-one instruction mode that coaches follow skiers throughout the whole course of skiing. In the new teaching mode, each coach is fixed in one station to teach the same content and skiers ski between stations to receive different kinds of instructions.

2. Yunfoshan Ski Resort

Covering an area of 450,000 square meters, Yunfoshan Ski Resort boasts primary, intermediate, and senior trials to meet the needs of skiers of different levels. There are 7 trials in total, including one 1,000m-long senior trail, which is just the international standard length, two intermediate trails from 300m to 700m long, and four primary trails from 100m to 300m long. The 7 trails can accommodate 5,000 people at the same time.
Using the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympic Games as an opportunity, the staff members at Yunfoshan Ski Resort have been improving the infrastructure construction of winter sports. They upgraded facilities such as magic carpets, jumping platforms, and obstacle props, created a children's snow playground, and opened up entertainment projects such as sliding lanes and snow spinning. Through these efforts, public winter sports have been vigorously promoted with more and more tourists coming into the snow fields to experience the joy brought by snow sports.
If the daytime skiing experience is speed and passion, then the night skiing feeling is a kind of extreme romance. Stars twinkling and lights flickering on, the sky is a bit dark but it adds a bit of warmth to the snow field.
The lights on both sides of the snow trails are lit up in turn, and the white snow trails and lights all shine. Skiers flew down from the high-elevation slopes and one flat expanse of whiteness is all passing before their eyes, as skiing people gradually become less and less. This scene allows skiers to experience the unique charm of the night ski field.
